The Cross Cut Saw is widely acknowledged as the most spectacular alpine ridge walk in Australia. Aptly named, the trek follows a saw tooth ridge high above the treeline, right on the Great Divide. The sheer magnitude of the terrain, the rugged escarpments and the awe inspiring wilderness views will leave you breathless. From Refrigerator Gap the track navigates through the cliffs of the Bluff escarpment to the summit at 1725m, where we enter the magical High Country. It is a land of twisted gnarled snow gums, aromatic herb fields carpeted in wildflowers, historical Mountain Cattlemen’s huts and spectacular views of ranges upon ranges to the horizon. For the next four days we trek the ever changing scenery in this alpine wilderness wonderland. On our final day we descend from the Alpine National Park via lake Cobbler visiting the wonderful wineries of the King Valley en route. Fully guided by Diamantina’s expert guides, fully vehicle supported hiking leaves you free from the burden of heavy packs, you will enjoy this trek only carrying a day pack. Camping is in luxury swags on stretchers in tents. At the end of the day sit around the campfire and relax after the days walk while we prepare you one of our sumptuous fresh cooked meals with fine Australian table wines.
